In this small film world, we download films,view them and often write film reviews. In the BIG film world,our contributions would be valued.

Well, as a author of 2 dinky.. er excuse me, two TOTALLY FINE AND WELL CRAFTED films on here, I cherish the fact alone that other people can view my work and talk about it. If people want to talk about it, they can email me or use the forum.

I'm still waiting to hear back from Mel re my comments on "The Passion".

And to steal a pandering quote from Trafalgar! Come see what the fuss is about! They're sexy! They're what you want!

PS. I just watched Profit For Perversion again, and I dunno, it STILL made me laugh because it's just so stupid and random.. Guess I did something right.

Spuzz, "Profit for Perversion" makes me laugh every time too. But I could only watch "Albert" once because, despite the humor, it's kinda heartbreaking. Which is good, too.
How about some more?

spuzz.This week, I viewed your film "Albert" and my opinion is that is a sincere film and a rewarding download. Recommended Jack

Well, I guess I'm a filmmaker, and here's some feedback. Profit for Perversion is five stars worth of laughs, and Robot Love, I Love You is five stars worth of quirk. I loved both films, and - the true test - kept both of them on my hard drive.

I've made a couple or three films, too:

http://www.archive.org/movies/details-db.php?collection=opensource_movies&collectionid=valse

And, recently, in response to the lack of editing in The Complete Destruction of a Hard Drive, I added another film to my catalogue. Since it was a joke, it's not on the Archive:

I try my best, but I know others have better editing equipment and just better artistic visions. So I say, keep the films coming. If I can't make a film as good as yours, I'll at least do my best to write you a good review.

It was good reading from the above film makers. But we still have not heard from so many others whose films have been reviewed and who have not a single forum posting

Personally, I like feedback, but don't pay it much mind. When editing movies, writing my weblog (www.dannysland.blogspot.com) or writing my zines and books (HINT, HINT, see the blog for details), my primary audience is ME. I'm happy to share my work with the world, but as long as it pleases its target audience of one person, everything else is just gravy.

It's my experience that it's best not to take praise too seriously, and to sort through criticism, looking for ways to improve your work in the future.

See what all the fuss isn't about with my two quirky clipfilms:
